Love the Milkbar. Great coffee, friendly folks, and a great chat all the time. Love the decor and the music too.

We had a big day of touring and our guide suggested a quick coffee before starting out. The service was very slow but the coffee was good. There are a few outdoor seats and it was a great place to sit and plan our day.

Good coffee, amazing cookies - my favourite is the Chocolate Salted Caramel - friendly service, centrally situated, lots to look at while chilling.

I ordered a lemon friand and coffee. The friend was frozen and the coffee was disgusting. I don't think they know what is a cappuccino. Staff attitude was as frozen as the friend. Do not go there.
